I have this voice in my head telling me to end my life every time something bad happens to me. Does anyone here relate? How do you help push those thoughts away?

      What you think, you become. I try to fake it til you make it. Drown the terrible impulsive thoughts with self love. And gratitude. It won’t go away instantly but before I knew it I was having more good days than bad.

      I totally relate. This might sound dumb but I try to tell that voice in my head to shut up. Just over and over again telling yourself that that voice is wrong.

      First of all- I try to establish a logical mindset phrase to tell myself. Ex: you are safe and loved. For me that's usually what I struggle with. I have written words of affirmation all over my house lol. "You are enough" "You are beautiful " They're not just meant for me, of course but they help a lot. Then I get in a low stress environment- for me it's my bedroom alone usually. Practice breathing and grounding techniques. Repeat your affirmation or whatever you call it. Call someone who loves you. ❤ Blast your favorite happy music Take a shower or bath Take a walk Read a book you've read before Doing familiar non stressful things helps a lot. Message me if u need a friend. 💕💕💕

      I also try and do anything possible to avoid triggering those thoughts and plan ahead. Loneliness is a big one for me so i always plan ahead or make sure to keep busy or stay busy mentally with a tv show or something

      I totally relate to this - depression often feels like having a bully in your head. My therapist told me to challenge that bully and debate it. I have also taken other advices from interviews and podcasts and social media. One interview said to always ask yourself, WHO SAID THAT? To remember to SEPARATE you and the voices in your head. To view it as a 3rd person perspective. A podcast said basically to take and view baby steps as big accomplishments and use that against those voices (look how strong i am). A social media page said to do 3 things, to recognize the bad thought, name the FEELING it evokes (for data for yourself) + to also talk back at it like you would a bully: “cool story, bro. leave me alone”. Sounds crazy but trust me it works. I have had moments where i’m literally like “stfu bitch i know my worth” and it works. Haha best of luck ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
